swinging, in one of the wilt presidenti es we've ever this. >> [overlapping speakers] both candidates come outswinging in one of the wildest presidential debates eve ever seen. tonight's town hall debate format meant no podeiums leaving the candidates out in the open. grace lee shows us it wasn't long before they were going toe to toe. >> and they were doing it often, dana. >> president barack obama had a lot of ground to make up following the first debate. it appears he did. 37% gave him the win and 37% called it for mitt romney. >> california were even more
11:01pm
convinced. 56% of those surveyed called the president the clear winner. part of the reason they say the president was engaged and seemed better prepared than before. it was his perform thans that really -- performance that set the tone. >> and very little of what governor romney said was true. >> reporter: and with that we saw a different mr. obama. >> you stood in front of a coal. >> okay. ponented at -- plant and pointed at it and says this plan kills and took pride in shutting it down and now you're a big champion in coal. what i try to do is be pretty consistent. >> have you looked at your pension? >> i don't look at mine. it's not as big as yours. >> reporter: governor romney was clearly prepared and he stayed on message.
11:02pm
>> my priority is on jobs. we can't afford four more years like this. >> reporter: what was different in round 2? the tone was often combative. >> i don't believe you're a person who will be pushing for oil and gas and coal. you will get your chance in a moment. that was a statement. >> you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an attack of terror. it was not spontaneous demonstration. >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record because -- >> he did in fact, sir. let me call it an act of terror -- he did call it an act of terror. >> reporter: as expected the moderator, did not sit on the
11:03pm
sidelines. >> i got to move you along. >> he actually got the first question so i get the last answer in that one. >> actually in the follow-up it doesn't work that way. i understand both of you, but i will get run of town. >> i just described you precisely how i do it with a single that people can put their productions and credits in. >> we're keeping track, i prolls you. >> joining me now is political analyst joe tumen. did they go too far this time around ramping it up. >> no, i think it was reminiscent in some ways of what some people found distasteful about joe biden's combative nature. both the president and romney were doing these tonight.
11:04pm
i've been watching these since 1960 and there was something weird about talking to the president saying you'll get your turn. you are talking to the most powerful person on the earth. the hand motionings were also very -- motions were very strong. there was something about not being wereful about the institution of presidency. >> we're going to move on with too a cup -- to a couple issues that were bought up this time around. one woman's health issues. >> a major difference in this campaign is that governor romney feels comfortable having politicians in washington decide the healthcare choices that women are making. i think that's a mistake. >> the president had a huge lead with women about a week ago. a new gallup poll shows him
11:05pm
having an one point lead among women. >> well there's this and other polls that are suggesting that there's division in those numbers and there's a division between what married and single women think. married have turned back towards romney. but i have to say, that on the whole, i think the president's performance was probably more appealing to women. it wasn't just what obama said, it was also what the governor said. google these words, binders of women. how he made the comment he gave women time to go home to their kids so they could make dinner and the rest of it. there are a lot of people who cringed and say, they see us as people who are solely responsible for the children. that may be a problem for the governor. >> one more bite. we brought up the 47%, we heard
11:06pm
it again tonight. >> i care about 100% of the american people. i want 100% to have a bright and prosperous future. >> i believe that governor romney is a goodman, but he also said between closed doors that 47% of the country see themselves as victims who refuse -- >> a question that he tried to answer by saying i love 100% of the people. that particular moment is the reason i thought that obama won the debate. it was the last minute and he reminded voters of what he should have said two weeks ago. it's what he says in private that you have to be concerned about. it this is what he really thinks of 47% of the people. the president said, you got to hold him accountable to his
11:07pm
words. that may be verydaging. -- damaging. that can make a dig difference in the tight polls. >> thank you to you. and check out our exclusive presidential forum on cbs5.com. every day the candidates are waying in on issues that matter to you. >> also in the news tonight, hundreds of people filled san francisco's city hall today and honor ambassador chris stevens. the bay area native was one of four americans killed in benghazi libya in the terrorist attack. on his friends and families' final goodbyes. >> reporter: family and friends, diplomats and a senator joined to celebrate the life of ambassador chris stevens. his younger sister remembered how she was the target of his pranks and also how he inspired
11:08pm
her growing up. >> i saw the world through chris' wide amount mystickizes. -- optimistic eyes. >> everybody thought to send us one of your best diplomats. but unfortunate will not be able to protect him. >> reporter: friends said he was a good diplomat because he was interested in the interests of the libyan people. >> he was being trailed by security men who were obviously very intimidating to other tourists. as she recounted it, he reached over to one of the men, stole his camera and started taking pictures of the men who had been following them. they were so dumbfounded that they had to laugh.
11:09pm
and after a quickkers, chris -- conversation chris convinced them to stand down. >> there are multiple investigations on how it happened including questions about the security at the consulate. it would barely register here, but on the east coast, everyone is talking about their big earthquake. a 4.0 struck just west of portland maine today. it was felt as far as boston and connecticut. there are reports of minor damage. one family says that they have some cracks in their house. earthquakes are rare in new england, but not unheard of. this is the second strongest in maine's history. the san francisco giants are in enemy territory preparing for game 3 against the cardinals. the team worked out in cbs
11:10pm
stadium this evening. >> hello from st. louis. good news to report. marko scooter, the giants second baseman who took the hard slide in yesterday's game. he even hit a home run. you can expect him to be in the line-up for tomorrow's game three. >> when he wants to talk to you before the game [expletive] >> this is much better than what i saw. and it will be there tomorrow. ♪[ music ] >> st. louis isn't known for the silver screen, the barbecue sauce, not even budweiser and you know how it pains me to say that. it's about baseball. the giants see the arch as the great way not to -- gate way not to the west, but to the
11:11pm
world series. >> will clark was there in '87 when the giants blew an opportunity to get to the world series. busch stadium is one of the biggest home field advantages evidenced by the cardinals 50 home wins this season. >> the whole time i was there as a visitor, you know, they really appreciate good baseball. >> it'll be a pair of 16 game winners in game three. and for all of you who can't make it to the baseball game, well this bud's for you. san francisco is showing its giants pride all over town. this is a live look at city hall lit up in orange. we'll have much more on game three and that slide later in sports. >> this is what ten million$

11:16pm
the opposite direction. the boat did what is called a pitch pole as it turned. >> it's very easy to stick the nose in the boat and that's when the capsizes occur. >> reporter: most of the boat was still out of the water and intact as crews clung to the upside down hole. that was around 3:00 p.m. a few hours later the boat was completely overturned and it wing was under water. by evening the wing was chopped up into pieces and the hole got thrashed as the current pushed the boat beyond the golden gate at least seven miles out to sea. >> i'm not sure what happened. we'll have to reveal the data and video. >> all of a sudden it just went over and did a pitch pole and wound up upside down. >> reporter: all across the bay people saw the flip. including the uc berkeley sailing tame.
11:17pm
>> when it went over everyone was fascinated to see what was going to happen next. >> reporter: today had the strongest tied of the year. this is the first time a major incident has happened with the newer longer 72 food design. >> you learn a lot more from your fouls than if you hadn't done this. now we know how hard we can push it and where the limits are and what to do safety wise how to get off untarmed. -- unharmed. >> the the wreckage is back inside the bay moving at a speed at about 1 knot. it should be here around 1 a.m. . we'll crunch all the data and try to make sure this doesn't happen again. who would steal a puppy right out of an animal shelter. somebody snatched ten week old

11:19pm
they will start extracting the, you know, the workers and once they get to opportunity they'll, you know, dash. >> reporter: we showed you this mass shop lifting of an union square store last month. the cops called them rainbow girls because the girls often dress and dye their hair in bright colors. >> they were wearing more subdued out fits when they struck tory burts on tuesday afternoon. >> the employees tell me that the girls immediately spread out inside the store. one strangely plugged her cell phone in to charge while others grabbed stuff and put it into their shopping back. >> clerks tried to lock them in a activity hold them for
11:20pm
police. they eventually got away. >> other stores say they have gotten hit in recent days including this one which had its front door shattered. they slammed it shut while escaping with a few stolen goods. >> in this case they only got away with a cell phone cover and a hand bag of one of the employees. some california school districts are red hot from a salty snack. this is youtube video and its dits -- it's an induction of how popular flaming hot cheetos are. some schools want to ban them. one bag has 24 grams of fat and almost a quarter of recommended
